I'm sorry there's no link. I guess I must have copied this picture from somewhere and saved it.

Bolivia: A Country With No McDonald’s

Bolivia: A Country With No McDonald’s | Brainfriendly, motivating stuff for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it
What America can learn from one of the most sustainable food nations on Earth.

 

Seth Dixon's insight:

Many feel that corporate expansion within the food industries is inevitable because that's what we are currently experiencing in highly globalized countries such as the United States.  Bolivia proves an example of a country that that has rejected corporate hegemony in the marketplace because they support traditional food choices and local vendors.  Keep in mind that we shouldn't overly romanticize Bolivia, but they are a compelling example showing that consumers can impact food options.

Jason Schneider's curator insight, February 9, 10:22 PM

Personally, I find McDonald's to be really unhealthy and it makes Bolivia a healthy country that they prefer traditional food over fast food. Not to mention the food production businesses that Bolivia (and a few other countries that border it) has. Also, it's actually cheaper to pay for food freshly out of being produced then paying 5 dollars for an unhealthy burger at McDonalds. However, the reason why people would order McDonald's is because it's cheaper than restaurants and some people are too lazy to cook. I'm sure if the some countries had less McDonalds like Bolivia, they would focus more on healthy foods and traditional foods.

Danielle Lip's curator insight, February 10, 9:18 PM

From reading this article you see that the Bolivians do not want fast food but would rather eat their traditional foods, this is important because traditional foods are probably healthier and also helps to keep tradition in families for more generations. Of course Bolivians eat other foods besides traditional foods but nothing to the extent of McDonalds. I feel like the Bolivians could teach Americans a thing or two when it comes to eating foods that come from others and not from processed food such as McDonalds, yes McDonalds might be good at the time but the long term effects are horrendous. 

Keeping tradition and not having a fast food chain will help the state of Bolivia so that it preserves its sacredness. 

Lena Minassian's curator insight, February 13, 11:29 AM

I absolutely love this! Here is a country that takes a lot of pride in eating fresh foods. They do not have any fast food chains because Bolivians prefer their traditional foods just the way they are. They still eat hamburgers but prefer to buy them from women who make them instead of a McDonald's. Bolivians value that interaction and relationship with the people surrounding them and that genuinely makes food more enjoyable. Their food relationships do not involve money but the effects of what these fresh foods can do for them.

Making the Founding Fathers proud? Defending champs win Coney Island hot dog eating contests (VIDEO)

Making the Founding Fathers proud? Defending champs win Coney Island hot dog eating contests (VIDEO) | Brainfriendly, motivating stuff for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

"The true meaning of July 4th is, of course, competitive eating, and this Independence Day the US celebrated two true American champs: 

 

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut and Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, both of whom defended their titles in Coney Island's annual hotdog-scoffing contest. Both kept their titles in Nathan's Famous annual 4th of July hot dog eating contests.


Chestnut downed 69 weiners in 10 minutes, while Thomas managed 36.75 in the same time. (We wouldn't like to see the 0.25 that got away.) Now that's what we call freedom...."
